Doggie House, Inc. (Doggie House)

Doggie House is an organization that started on Facebook at the end of May, 2009. It emerged as an Adoption Agency with the goal of placing pets into homes, without regard to their breed or origin. As the quantity of followers was growing, we were led formally to constitute Doggie House as an Non-Profit Organization. From this moment on we were committed to a very important cause: the mistreatment, abandonment and homelessness of dogs. Later Doggie House arrived at the point where it was asked to perform more rescues than it was able to execute. For this reason, Doggie House started a movement to create a consciousness among the citizenry, that together we can make a difference in the lives of needy animals, promoting the slogan “Be Part of the Change.”
